SLA warns Jaffna PLOTE

Brig. Marambe warned the Jaffna Organiser of the People's Liberation Organisation of Tamil Eelam (PLOTE), Mr. Kirupairajah, against levying taxes or extorting money from Jaffna businessmen.

The warning came after PLOTE cadres had threatened the owner of the 'Gopika Textiles' to pay them money.

The owner had contacted the Human Rights Commission in Jaffna, which brought the matter to the Sri Lankan Army.

The Brigadier summoned the PLOTE organiser and had warned him that his group would be held responsible if any thing happens to the textile shop or to the owner.

Meanwhile the Sri Lankan Police has said that lodge owners in the northern town of Vavuniya should submit a list of guests staying in the lodges to them daily.

They also told the lodge owners that they should not allow anyone other than the Police and the Army to conduct search operations in the lodges.
